Shopping in NYC? I’ve scoured our sample sale database to put together this handy monthly guide to NYC sample sales and shopping events.

Below is a guide of some of the top sample sale and sale events in the NYC area culled from our sales database. These dates aren’t “firm”, designers often change the dates of their sales or cancel their sales all together, so don’t go planning a vacation to the Big Apple based upon this list. Use this list as a shopping guide and then contact the designer/ merchant for updated information regarding the event or check out our NYC Top Sales listings.  Have a Sample Sale you would like to add to this calendar?
